The talented Anaïs Mitchell wrote the composition, verses, and narrative for the musical Hadestown. It tells a reimagined version of the ancient myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.

Her paramour Orpheus, a penniless singer-songwriter, sets off on a mission to save her.

TimeOut NY encourages its audience to witness the wonderful interpretation of Hadestown. They shared, “Here's my advice: Attend hell. And by hell, of course, I'm referring to Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's engaging and emotional new Broadway musical. In essence, the musical modernizes the ancient Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice: Boy crosses paths with a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds similar to an old tale, doesn't it? But it's the genius of Anaïs Mitchell's current version of this timeless tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that brought life back into this classic narrative.”
